Horizon Festival - Online for 2020 // 28 Aug - 6 Sep 2020

OPEN AIR

Celebrating Place, Open Air was a monthly concert series, streamed from the Sunshine Coast's most picturesque locations, featuring some of the region's most celebrated artists.

Our June Open Air featured Yalanji Woman of Song, Deline Briscoe, who delighted us with her with her signature vocal style from the breathtaking Glass House Mountains. Deline interweaves Wulngkabadi (Yalanji traditional singing) with jazz, hip-hop and soul, with a powerful vocal delivery that can change hearts and minds. Deline was joined by Uncle Noel and Aunty Helena, who officially welcomed us to Jinibara and Kabi Kabi country; the lands where Horizon Festival events now stand.

July's Open Air series featured powerhouse duo; five-time ARIA award-winning artist Katie Noonan and supremely talented classical musician Louise King of Cello Dreaming. This beautiful classic contemporary concert features both solo and duo performances from these two incredible artists, filmed against a stunning sunset at Chambers Island.

Our third and final Open Air featured popular Australian Indie-Folk duo, The Dreggs, recorded on a moody day at the spectacular Point Cartwright and streamed into  your living room. Musicians Paddy Macrae and Zane Harris grew up on the Sunshine Coast with the ocean by their feet, so it’s only fitting they share with us their coastal vibes and Indie-Folk / Roots tunes in celebration of our beaches and coastline.
